Four Win­der­mere stu­dents raise over $500 for hur­ri­cane re­lief

The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS -

Four fifth-grade stu­dents from Win­der­mere El­e­men­tary School in the Amherst School District raised over $500 for the Amer­i­can Red Cross gen­eral dis­as­ter re­lief fund by par­tic­i­pat­ing in a “rea­dathon.”

Three stu­dents from Heather Rogers’ class and one stu­dent from Sara Mazurek’s class com­bined to read over 40 books in four weeks. The stu­dents re­ceived pledges from fam­ily, friends and neigh­bors to help raise money to sup­port vic­tims from the re­cent hur­ri­canes that hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Molly Sieven­piper, Ex­ec­u­tive Co­or­di­na­tor of the Amer­i­can Red Cross in Buf­falo, came to Win­der­mere on Mon­day to thank the four stu­dents and present them cer­tifi­cates.
